My name is Adil Sanai. I am a Muslim. I lived in Pakistan until I was 15 years old. There are no schools for people with disabilities there so I never went to school. I couldn't walk or close my mouth. I did not have a wheelchair so my family carried me everywhere. When I came to the United States I received medical help and had many surgeries. I was very determined to have a better life here. So I exercised really hard to get better. I can now walk and close my mouth. I now attend AHRC Queens Workshop in New York City. I also work at Marshall's three days a week. Last year I became an ambassador for Saltillo Corporation. I use a ChatPC device so people can understand what I have to say. It's small and easy to use. I can make changes on the device by myself. My story is also on the disability.gov website.
